I see young people with game devices, not books, in hand--of course, I like my little IPhone. Nothing like my Nook when I’m traveling, and truth be told, I might use it more if I didn’t live right across from the library or if the Nook books were all free. I think of the books I wrote for teachers. Would they just be on line now?
Here at the cottage I love my books. I have brought stacks from home and I need them all. I read them very slowly, page by page, day by day, underlining and highlighting, taking time to think about each gem. I find quotes for the blog. They are important tools for solitude and I trust that those of you creating “room of your own” have a prominent place for books.
